The Wichita Mountains Series

I collaborated with photographer Don House on a series of images taken in and around the Wichita Mountains in southwest Oklahoma. Don created classic black-and-white portraits with his Hasselblad. I concentrated on color images of human interactions with the landscape. The traveling exhibition we created from this work also features broadsides of poems by Sy Hoahwah.

The show premiered in November 2015 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. A catalogue for the exhibition is available via mail order. We gave two artist talks; Chris Engholm created a video summary of the first one.

Additional exhibitions of the Wichitas project took place at the Argenta Branch Library in North Little Rock from May 19 to June 9, 2017, and at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute on Petit Jean Mountain from August 3 to 31, 2017. The works are currently on view at Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma.

The exhibition can be booked through the Arkansas Arts Council’s Arts on Tour program for venues in Arkansas. For shows in neighboring states, please get in touch with us–funding may be available through state arts councils.

Two of my photos from this project (shown below) were juried into the 58th Delta Exhibition at the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock in 2016. Blue Goose Station was also included in the 41st PhotoSpiva Annual National Photography Competition. The show ran from March 4 to April 30, 2017.
